Resolution Games, known for virtual reality titles including Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs, Bait!, and Acron: Attack of the Squirrels!, has announced Blaston, a competitive virtual reality dueling game. It will launch in 2020. Platforms were not announced.
Here is an overview of the game, via Resolution Games:
Blaston will pit players against each other in player-versus-player duels that challenge them to stay in constant motion and blast their opponents with incredible precision using an assortment of high-tech, futuristic weaponry.
Best known for its library of family-friendly VR experiences, Blaston will be the first release from Resolution Games that takes aim at the growing audience of fiercely competitive gamers that thrive on the intense thrill of multiplayer combat.
“We really couldn’t be more excited about Blaston,” said Resolution Games CEO Tommy Palm in a press release. “It’s definitely a departure from the cooperative game play that Resolution Games has become known for and will introduce a whole new genre and audience of players to the studio.”
Resolution Games chief creative officer and Blaston producer Mathieu Castelli added, “We’ve been playing Blaston behind-the-scenes for quite some time, and Tommy still hasn’t managed to beat me. It’s been a lot of fun. The offices have been filled with shouts of excitement during matches. There’s a real adrenaline rush that comes from the physical intensity!”
